While playing in the sandpit, the Room One teachers suggested that the children build a volcano! They were extremely excited and each grabbed a spade to pitch in.

Next we got some baking soda, vinegar and red dye. We mixed the dye and vinegar together, put a bit of baking soda in the top of the volcano, poured the liquid on top, and KABOOM! The lava exploded out of the top!

Activities such as this one are an excellent way to introduce children to science concepts and helps them to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.

Be sure to ask your child their thoughts on their volcano creation!
